This is a theoretical discussion of the bioethics of care from the historical perspective of health care and its contribution to the expansion of knowledge roduction in Nursing, which is presented as a proposal for a more humane and democratic action in the exercise of care through the formulation of new concepts based on respect for human dignity, unselfishness and knowledge autonomy discussed in the theories of nursing. Nursing has been seen as a profession on the rise due to the care for the individual on his/her complete existential dimension where bioethical discussions are signs of new ways of integrating actions and other health professionals who take care of the solutions for the conflicts experienced in the day to day care in hospital services.
